Why Roof Inspection Is Important Before a Home Sale

A roof inspection should be part of your preparations before selling your home. This way, you can have zero worries about the condition of your roof before putting your home up for sale.

Market standards are high, and sales figures for 2021 are climbing. To stay at the front of the selling game, all of your bases need to be covered, and roofs are often at the top of buyers’ priority lists. Getting your roof inspected confidently tells potential buyers that your roof is in good condition.

Roof Inspection

To give you a clearer idea of why you should have your roof inspected prior to selling your home, here are some of the benefits.    

1. Peace of Mind 
A roof over your head is the ultimate security blanket, and, when you’re confident that this roof is structurally sound it frees you up to think about other important things and confidently tell potential buyers that your roof is in good condition.

2. Minimize Repair Costs 
Preventable maintenance can spot problem areas before they turn into major repairs. Avoiding emergency repairs can help you avoid water damage and increase the overall health of your roof.

3. Higher Home Value 
If your roof is damaged, buyers will expect a lower price for your home. With a professional inspection, you can determine the weak areas of your roof and restore it to pristine condition before putting your house on the market. 

What to Expect From an Inspection

Above all else, make sure that you have a trusted, qualified expert to examine your roof. On the visit, the inspector will examine the integrity of your roof by entering your attic and walking over the surface of your roof. Some inspectors use drones or infrared scanners to check for damage, but almost all will require the basic ability to walk into the attic and onto the roof. Some areas the inspector will analyze include:

  • Signs of leaks in the attic, ceilings or walls
  • Sagging, missing roof pieces
  • Interior spaces (attics, ceilings and walls)
  • Mold growth
  • Missing shingles
  • Incorrect installations
  • Other damages
